A Thousand Things That Won't Last

a thousand regrets from a thousand past lives

                                                 the night is as empty as she is inside

a thousand crushed hopes from a thousand lost dreams

                                                  she tries her best to smile but she's weaker than she seems

 

so every night

before the lights go out

                                  she listens to

                                                   the beating of his heart

and she falls asleep

                            with tears in her eyes

                            holding on

                            to her dreams                                            for dear life

 

but she knows it won't last forever

 

a thousand old scars  from a thousand dark days

                                                       the sadness shows through his half-hearted gaze

a thousand more lies from a thousand old friends

                                                        he keeps on believing it will come to an end

 

so every night

before the lights go out 

                                  he listens to 

                                                   the beating of her heart

and he falls asleep

                            with tears in his eyes 

                            holding on 

                            to his dreams                                            for dear life

 

but he knows it won't last forever
